Welcome to the Denby Dale Centre's training centre. 

We aim to improve the quality levels of services provided by local community groups in their communities, by supporting their training needs with affordability and quality.  Our training is open to everyone, charities, businesses and individuals.

The Denby Dale Centre is Quality for Health accredited.  We offer a choice of accredited and non-accredited courses, with accredited course qualifications offered via Highfield Online Training.

We sell affordable, quality training to individuals and businesses, and offer community groups/not-for-profits a charity discount scheme on most first aid and food safety courses (upon providing organisational details). 

Not for profit organisations should visit our Charity Discount page to apply for a discount coupon, which will be emailed to you.  Use the discount coupon for each course you book when you check-out.

Please visit our Training Shop to purchase your training.

Training Standards

Training providers are no longer approved or regulated by the HSE.  Instead, recognition of training is provided through a variety of possibilities, some through Ofqual, some through the First Aid Industry itself and some through an independent route.

Notes regarding HSE Training Standards and useful HSE information for organisations who have first aid responsibilities.

DDC Training have adopted the independent route with due diligence and quality controls being monitored by Quality Assurance Assessors who are independent to the Training Centre.

Minibus Driving Awareness Course

We provide a schedule of minibus driving awareness courses for our own in-house minibus fleet and spaces are available to external groups. This course is an alternative to the CTA MiDAS training which was required, however it is NOT the same course content and should not be substituted for this course.

The MDAC is respectful of a driver already passing their driving test, and with driving experience of at least two years, has their own style of driving.  The course will highlight the following five themes:

  • It's LONGER

  • It's WIDER

  • It's HIGHER

  • It's HEAVIER


Part 1 - Learning 

There is a "home-paper" to complete electronically, with links to YouTube video and a short multiple choice questionnaire to complete.  

Part 2 - Practical

There is a "practical" session to familiarise the driver with a minibus and then to have a drive where the "group" can discuss different driving styles and ask themselves if their driving can improve through sharing best practice. 


There is NO driving test. 


The drive will include driving in a car park and making reversing easier, with practicals (this is because all insurance incidents of DDC fleet have been in first or reverse gear, in a car park style situation).

We have infection control protocols with our courses, to make sure our staff and our trainees are safe.  

We only use Covid Secure sites, and we use Blended Courses, which means an element of the course will be done from home, as a distance learning course, reducing contact time at our training centre.
